Rose appeared to roll his ankle while attempting to stay inbounds midway through the fourth quarter, but despite the threat of another spell on the sidelines, the 2011 MVP was upbeat about the setback.
"All of it's positive," Rose, who recorded 23 points, six assists and two rebounds before suffering the injury, told reporters."For what I went through and all I've been through, just me playing and feeling all right after the game.
"Of course my ankle's a little bit sore, but I'm just happy nothing's not tore or broken. So I'll be all right."
